Reflecting on Over 10 Years of My Metal Business Card

While we are excited about 2022, and all of the new features we have in the works, we also know it is important to look back at all we have accomplished in the years leading up. Join us in celebrating the history of new product and feature launches dating back to 2015.

2020 Year In Review

This year is finally coming to an end – perhaps not soon enough for some of us. 

We hope the impact of Covid-19 on you and your loved ones was minimal and that 2021 can give us all a sense of positive energy.

Despite it all, here at My Metal Business Card we’re still laser-focused on our WHY: Producing products that have a positive impact.

This coming year will see considerable investment into our internal processes, state-of-the-art manufacturing and an all-new website (more on that, below), all to benefit you with better service, faster turnaround times and a growing number of products that make you stand-out.

We’re driven by your success, so if we can help elevate your 2021, please let us know.

Thank you for your continued and loyal support – it’s incredible to see we’ve topped 2,500+ 5-Star Reviews and counting!  Cheers to you and all the best in 2021!

2020 brought many new announcements and releases.  Here’s a quick recap:

  • NEW Quick Executive Metal Business Card Pack The Quick Executive Pack offers the fastest, and most affordable, way to to get our eye-catching black metal business cards in your hands in 5 business days or less!

  • Behind the scenes at My Metal Business Card…In what might be the perfect ending to this weird year, we were hit with some wild weather, at least by Southern California standards. On Monday, December 28, our office was caught in a quick hail storm that made us – if even for a few minutes – feel like we were in the mountains, drinking hot cocoa and waiting to hit the slopes.  Only, there was just hot coffee and no slopes (with snow, anyway)… but it was fun, while it lasted.

Our team has been working hard on a mega-project that will yield a level of service, convenience, and ease this industry has yet to see.

Our all-new website, coming early 2021, will make it easy to navigate products, review your digital proofs, track your order through production, make re-orders simple and so much more.

The new site has been re-imagined and designed from the ground-up, based on our near-decades long experience and a lot – and we mean a LOT – of user data and reviews.

We’re excited to show you the updates in store!
